Frozen Britain picture taken from space


I have seen this fascinating picture on the TV and on various websites in the last 24 hours. I think it is going to become one of those iconic images that sums up an entire news event, in this case it being the weather in January 2010 in the UK.

It was apparently taken by NASA's Terra satellite and shows the entire country covered in snow.

Not quite the entire country...

A friend of mine lives in Holyhead (Angelsey), he is quite bemused by the fact that he has no snow at all.

Still, it's an amazing picture. It goes to show that despite all our technological advancements we are still very much at the mercy of nature.

Saw that in the Guardian this morning, what a stunning image.

Indeedy. Could all these Home-Owner-Ists who wail on about Britain being an overcrowded island with no land left to build houses on please point to the developed bits?
